Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: what new bands are out there?


These guys freakin jammed -

The Brew

Holy Ghost Tent Revival - any band with a banjo and a trombone is by definition amazing. They are a FloydFest repeat favorite.

Bobby Lee Rodgers Trio. I will listen to his Gibson ES-335 run through a Leslie amp all damn day. Just to mix things up he also plays a '47 Deering Crossfire banjo like there's no tomorrow.

Emmitt-Nershi Band, when Cheese meets Salmon. Billy Nershi from String Cheese Incident and Drew Emmitt from Leftover Salmon

Umphrey's McGee are very talented musicians and put on a great show - I think we've had this conversation before.

Steep Canyon Rangers - mostly mainstream bluegrass, but they can push the edges

Outformation - similar sound to Widespread Panic, but younger and a little more classic rock influenced.

Listen to all of these today and give a book report to the forum by noon tomorrow...........
